  1. BlueJacket Lobster Boat: A Review

    And I should add: Cathead’s model looks fantastic. Could be taken for a real boat with some clever photoshopping
  2. BlueJacket Lobster Boat: A Review

    I also built this lobster boat and had similar experiences as cathead: bulkheads not correct and needing shims etc. I also thought the plans were very poor and the instructions often bore little relationship to the plans. The wood was brittle and I was constantly fixing broken parts. Over all I was very disappointed with the kit, as I have been with other the Bluejacket kits I built: ironclads Monitor and Virginia.

  4. Thanks to all for the comments. I've bookmarked the ShipSpotting site. Thanks!
  5. This vessel (actually 2 side-by-side) was in the Naval Base at La Spezia in Italy. I don't have a clue as to its name. There are no numbers on it. Perhaps it is decommissioned?e

    nice work. I like this.
  7. Pets

    Our Zoe, Chocolate Lab, in September 2015. We lost her January this year, at just over 12 years. Gosh, I miss that dog.
  8. It is so obvious I wonder why it took me so long to see it.
  9. My new model shipyard

    Penny looks like a sweet dog. I bet she is great help in your model making. .

    Nice model. I like the base very much.
  11. They say necessity is the mother of invention. I realized the other day that the drawers in my work bench make shelves of different heights just right for rigging the ratlines on my Granado.
  12. That's a good point. I had not remembered that spiders shed their skin as the grow. They are Arthropods after all. I don't think I want to see her any larger.
  13. Poor girl is dead. Sorry for the out of focus picture, but smart phones aren't that smart I guess
